In brief: About all...

...I ever see from either of them is dryness and mild irritation.
I have my patients apply tretinoin at bedtime, so that any dryness will occur while they are asleep. For duac, i tell them to wait an hour after washing their face, to allow normal skin oils to replenish, before applying it.
